Today, I was holding a yard sale. A man came up to me and asked if he could buy a pair of red and white sneakers that I'd found in my attic and had never worn. Five bucks later, he was walking away with what I now realize was the pair of shoes signed by Michael Jordan given to me by my uncle. FML

YDI What an idiot. This might be an FML if your spouse/kid had held the yard sale.

And THAT is no one's fault but your own. You didn't even look at them before selling them?

lmfao. you are an idiot ! YDI . you should've looked at it beforee selling .

It could have been worse, they could have been signed by Michael Jackson! Then that would suck.

I totally thought that's what it said at first lol

i would like to point out that the ad on the side of my page is for Jordan Shoes

That couldv'e been worth thousands...

Let's comment on the first post to get our comments on the top of the list, because we're attention whores! You're all idiots. To the OP: FYL.

the ad on the side of my page is for jordans as well.

86 is such a hypocrite...

Who would even keep those in the attic?!

That would break me into tears if I had an autograph of mj. You should have tackled him.

I agree also lol.

Wow. I think you've learned a lesson.

And THAT is no one's fault but your own. You didn't even look at them before selling them?

Inspect your shit next time. YDI

Why would you sell sneakers for five dollars anyway. More like fyl for letting him sign beat-up/ extra athletic shoes.

I bet he's going to make a killing off of that... especially since they were mint condition, too. That sucks... pay closer attention next time :).

Depends...without a certificate of authenticity from somewhere reputable they might not be worth the five bucks. But there are suckers everywhere....

A certificate of authenticity? Really? Those are pretty much worthless. After all, who's to say the certificate is authentic? No, all that's really necessary is that someone can recognize the signature, which is much easier.

The only way to ensure you have an authentic Michael Jordan autograph is if it has a holographic Upper Deck sticker (I think its an UD sticker) with it. It hasn't always been this way so some without it may still be real. He has a contract with Upper Deck and thats why the sticker has to be there and also why he can't/won't sign autographs for people because it has to have that sticker and I don't think he carries them around with him.

So you didn't notice the signature? You just give random people random things at any cost? What are you willing to sell next time?

U HAVE GOT TO BE THE BIGGEST IDIOT EVER

This whole FML reminds me of 'Like Mike'.

That's probably because that movie was based on Michael Jordan's childhood and how he found some shoes for really cheap and became a good basketball player. Or something like that. The OP is sad that he won't be able to become good at the basketballs.

there goes a few thousand.
